    since you bought the phone on ebay,i would have the phone's esn checked to make sure the phone is not blacklisted.

    You can't "Jailbreak" an Android, but you can do something similar called "Rooting", maybe that is what you meant. Or unlocked? I looked into this and found one guy that had his hooked up just fine through the CDMA program, so at least we know its possible. Everything but the Verizon app store works.

    I checked esn its clean. How do i know if its been rooted or can i have it re-rooted or flashed or something? I dont know alot about these new phones just want to talk text and use my phone.

    when you add service press *288 and press 1 to activiate your service.

    Did the ebay auction actually describe it as "jailbroken"? Or rooted, or unlocked? What was the description?

    What steps did you take before dialing *22890? Did you activate it with straight talk? *228 or *22890 is after you've successfully activated and paid for service w/ST. Just checking.

    This is INCORRECT.

    You must dial *228, 1

    However, the OP's problem sounds like a lack of reception more than lack of ability to activate the phone.

    Which Casio Commando did you get?
    This one: http://www.phonescoop.com/phones/phone.php?p=3062
    or this one: http://www.phonescoop.com/phones/phone.php?p=3950

    The second one is unacceptable because it has LTE capability.

    Bear in mind that you need to purchase both a Network Access Card and at least a $45 service card before you can start service with Straight Talk on a CDMA telephone.

    Mowgie it said jailbroken. Straight talk acticvated account and entered access code for me.

    Earl i bought the code and already have unlimited plan.Phone wont dial anything out says mobile network not available. Do you guys think rooting my phone would help it.Maybe they messed something up when whoever tried to jailbreak or whatever they did too it?Its the 3g commando.C771 M070
